Region 10—Collaborating across County Lines to Strengthen Families

Print This Post


It’s time for a special Collaborative edition of Family Feud!

This episode pits the Southern Nuts against High Cotton. The coordinators on these teams will try their best to out-think each other in identifying ways that the 14 county Collaboratives of Region 10—located in southwest Georgia—are transitioning families out of poverty, curbing risky behavior, and engaging partners in collaborative work.


So sit back and get ready to hear about the positive outcomes Region 10 has accomplished over 25 years by bringing the Family Connection concept of local decision-making and collaboration among the communities through cross–county collaboration.

We believe that by working together we can nurture children and families who thrive in vibrant communities—everywhere. So get involved with your local Georgia Family Connection Collaborative:
